Detroit News headline trolls Lions, Patricia after loss

The Detroit Lions had a dreadful outing on Sunday in Minneapolis.

The Lions struggled to get much of anything going at U.S. Bank Stadium, and quarterback Matt Stafford was sacked 10 times in their 24-9 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

After their abysmal showing — and head coach Matt Patricia’s oddly-timed criticism of a reporter’s posture earlier this week — The Detroit News seems to have come up with the perfect headline for the front page of its Lions section on Monday.

Sunday’s loss — the Lions’ second-straight — marks another rough spot for the rookie head coach in recent weeks, especially after the team traded away their leading receiver, Golden Tate. Patricia’s strange comments to a reporter about being professional and sitting up straight certainly doesn’t help things for him in Detroit, either.

Regardless, though, The Detroit News has absolutely won this battle.

It looks like print media isn’t dead yet after all.
